The Rhone Valley
The Rhône Valley is a privileged traffic route between Lyon and Provence, and has many villages. The castles, woods and vineyards, the hills make up a landscape of great beauty, between heritage and nature. You can discover the treasures of Provence, from the Mediterranean to Mont-Ventoux, from the Luberon to the Alpilles Nature Park.
As a nature destination, the department must also be seen as a cultural destination. The museums of Vaucluse will seduce you. You will be able to discover, for example, the Comtadin-Duplessis museum in Carpentras, the Père Anselme winegrower’s tools museum in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the Judeo-Comtadin museum in Cavaillon…
Avignon, the city of the popes
Avignon, in the 14th century, welcomed the sovereign pontiffs who were forced to flee Rome. The city then spread throughout Europe and prospered despite the crises. Remarkable buildings such as the Palace of the Popes or the Pont Saint-Bénezet, which is the subject of a popular song, have survived from this prosperous period.
